£5 Million in Funding for Nature Projects to mark Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

A new initiative to empower people in economically deprived areas to undertake projects tackling climate change.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is partnering with The Wildlife Trusts to deliver a Platinum Jubilee legacy investment, which will support around 200 new groups across the UK to identify and implement local action in their communities.

The joint initiative, Next Door Nature, aims to give access to the natural environment to thousands of people who may not have fully appreciated it before, while raising awareness of climate change and restoring natural heritage.

Projects supported by the initiative could include:

  • Establishing wild habitats and green corridors.
  • Rewilding school grounds.
  • Transforming urbanised and unused areas into green spaces.

This £5 million sits alongside a £2 million Jubilee investment to support paid placements for young people from under-served communities in the nature workforce.

Further details on the Jubilee investments will be published in due course.
